I don't think so. The version in Debian unstable is 2.6, and from a Precise Alpha machine:


michael@laptop-testing:~$ apt-cache show gimp | grep Version
Version: 2.6.11-5ubuntu3
michael@laptop-testing:~$

https://lists.launchpad.net/desktop-packages/msg60135.html

and Gimp 2.7 is not finished yet http://www.gimp.org/release-notes/gimp-2.7.html

regardless of what you use you can install from source http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

but still only 2.6 available

It doesnt seem that they finished the current version completely yet, I think we will have to wait a bit more for this amazing piece of software.

Most likely not. 2.8 is not even final atm.
